Real leaders have SIX points in their plans
Actually, that's not fair. Only two of the points are lifted directly from Dion's notaplan. As for the other four:
1. The Bank of Canada and Minister of Finance will monitor financial markets.
2. Canada will attend the Canada-EU summit.
3. Canada will attend the meeting of G-20 Finance Ministers.
4. "Government spending will be focused and kept under control as the strategic review of departmental spending -- now in the second year of a four year review - continues."
I don't know about you, but this really reassures me and confirms that Canadians concerned about the economy made the right decision yesterday. After all, it takes a real leader to commit that Canada will attend the Canada-EU summit. And if "monitoring financial markets" isn't a real plan, I don't know what is!
